EZ Press Release  -- January 27, 2016 With the arrival of the year’s hottest weather to New South Wales’ eastern shore, pest vigilance becomes vital to local residents. Encouraged by the heat, termites not only reach their peak in activity, but begin to branch out further, in to new territory. Homeowners and property owners must be on their guard against new infestations, as many new nests are created in this time.

This peak of activity sees termites entering their winged phase. Winged termites, known as alates, allow the species to spread further and to enter new, untouched territory. Once a suitable area is found, the species begins to procreate and develop new nests, using any and all of the surrounding food within reach.

Luckily, this phase also leaves a number of tell-tale signs. The winged phase of the termite’s life span is a short one, and the wings themselves fall off after they find a new area to colonise. If you have begun to notice a large amount of cast-off insect wings around your house, it is a safe bet that you now are playing host to your neighbourhood’s newest colony. Keeping an eye on your walls and subfloor is also vital: the arrival of any new mud tubes leading towards your foundation is another giveaway of the presence of this voracious pest.

An ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure. Keeping your subfloor and living areas well-ventilated and dry will do a fine job of keeping termites away, as well as ensuring that brush or firewood is stored well away from your foundation. Termites are attracted to moist soil, so make sure that your land is well drained.

However, for all the preventative measures, there will be times when you simply become a victim. One in five houses in Sydney will experience a termite infestation over their life span. If you have begun to notice the tell-tale signs of a termite infestation, don’t disturb the nest and scatter the insects: it is time to call your local Sydney pest experts at Pink Pest. Home insurance is not guaranteed to cover termite damage, so it pays to err on the safe side, and to engage the professionals. Our tried and tested methods will keep your home, property, and investment safe.
